We have visited a few times and the food is amazing!!! Everything is fresh and delicious. Staff are friendly and fantastic at what they do!! We had an opportunity to stay at the hotel and it was more then what we expected. The rooms were...massive, clean and modern. The view of the canal is fantastic. Watching the ships go through the canal is breathtaking. We cannot say enough about the staff who treat you like friends.More

We did an impromptu day trip and found this gem. The food was amazing and the staff were incredible. We ended up getting a room at their hotel and the view of the canal is simply stunning. Very large rooms and they truly care about...their guests comfort. We had lunch the next day and the food was again amazing. The owner took the time to talk to us and make sure we were happy with everything. He makes you feel like family and we will definitely be back.More

My daughter and I had dinner here one night while we were camping at Rock Point. Food was great and staff were lovely. :-) Sitting at a table on the sidewalk though was not ideal. Chairs were on a slant, which got pretty uncomfortable after...20 minutes.More

To start with, I must say that the staff were very friendly. We were looking at the posted menu, and even though it was lunchtime busy a server asked if we needed help or were looking for a table. I hate it when staff are..."too busy" to even acknowledge you when you're waiting for a table. We returned for dinner, and were seated right away at an outdoor table overlooking the canal. This is an excellent use of public space during this COVID time. Again, though it was busy on a long weekend, our drinks and food order were taken quickly, and everything came in a good time. I had the pulled pork with slaw, and rice, and it tasted like it came from a restaurant that specialized in BBQ. That good. Great value for drinks and dinner, in a cute restaurant.More

Amazing surprise. Wasn’t expecting much in a town full of motels. But really enjoyed my room. Super clean, modern, spacious. Staff was friendly and food in restaurant was great. Only downfall my room was a bit hot…there was AC but it wasn’t keeping up.

We arrived in Port Colbourne around 12:15 and looking for a place to grab lunch. You cannot miss this place and they have creatively added a patio on a grass area across from the actual restaurant overlooking the canal. We were lucky to get a...table without a reservation and enjoyed a great lunch while looking at ships sail by. The fish & chips, burger and the lobster sandwich were all good.More

My room was very clean and neat and it was recently renovated. The pub had great pub style food. It opens toward the canal, with some tables across the street right up to the canal. The street had many small unique stores. The staff was...COVID prepared and very friendly.More

My husband and I haven’t been to Port Colborne and this place has the best reviews. The menu sounded fantastic! Unfortunately it didn’t live up to it. They were slammed and we didn’t even mind waiting 30 minutes for an appetizer and 1 hour for...lunch at 2:30 on a Sunday. All in all, the food was horrible! To start we had the lobster portobello “to share.” It was 1 portobello, it was all grey. No seasoning or flavor and the lobster tasted like it was a day old or so. For mains, we both had the lobster roll and sweet potato fries. The roll was not toasted and didn’t even have butter on it. It was the rolls you normally get to start a meal. The lobster tasted like it was days old. Again no seasoning. It was small and chewy. The fries were fried ok but again no seasoning at all. This was probably the worst food I’ve had while in Canada. It was hard to take down. The service was ok. I understand they were slammed. I wish we would have tried another place. We will not be coming back.More

Driving back from Niagara Falls and we were looking for a place that had perch fish and chips, found it here and it was absolutely delicious! Also had the Walleye wings so good! Will definitely go back!

I ate inside and both my servers wore their mask properly. They did move quickly though.

We do not control the menu online on TA. We are unable to change it without paying them over $200 and we change our menu twice a year. To see the current menu please go ro our website.
